Nico was schooled in resistance by the campesinos and campesinas of Colombia. He spent one year in the Peace Community of San José de Apartadó, and three years with the communities in the Magdalena Medio, Arauca, Catatumbo and Bogotá. Later, he worked with tenants facing displacement in Brooklyn, NY, and spent time with the villages resisting the Apartheid Wall in Palestine.

Nico spends much of his time working in collaboration with the vast network of local groups and organizers around the country that are making the movement strong. SOA Watch brings together religious communities, students, teachers, immigrants, veterans, community organizers, musicians, puppetistas and many others. New layers of activists are joining the movement to close the SOA in large numbers, including numerous youth and students from multinational, working-class communities. When Nico is on the road to visit and exchange ideas with local SOA Watch groups, he strives to actively foster equal exchanges and relationship building between communities that are involved in the same struggle for justice and democracy.
